I’ve had a great time so far in my 2 years. Very high quality teaching and a really friendly environment in my college with plenty of support available if you need it.

I go to Emmanuel college and the halls are amazing, good prices for the facilities you get with it (Inc free laundry service once a week). Modern and Medieval languages is a great and diverse course and allows you to study what actually interests you. Emmanuel's professors are understanding and look to help you along the way as much as possible. The porters and staff are friendly ( as is everyone in the college).

Vet.M.B (Hons) Veterinary Medicine
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

The course involves both practical elements of animal handling and the scientific basis from day 1, both of which are assessed throughout the course. Whilst the traditional preclinical/clinical divide may not suit everyone, for those who enjoy learning about how and why things work, and working from first principles, this course would suit you!

BA (Hons) Human, Social, and Political Sciences

My degree offers an impressive coverage of themes from sociology, history of political thought, anthropology, and political theory from various regions across the world.
The mode of assessment is 4 written exams each year, each exam consisting of a 3 hour session on which you write 3 essays.

BA (Hons) Modern and Medieval Languages

Think the degree is full of both positives and negatives:

Content and structure - nowhere near as flexible with modules as I would have thought and how they advertise it - mostly forced to do literature with very little flexibility - linguistics if one wants but even that isn't the best for me
Structure - extreme amount of texts to study makes it very difficult to read them and secondary critics about them

complexity - very complex, they expect an extremely high level of analysis and it is not easy at all

Course module review - Constitutional Law, 10/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

Constitutional Law
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

Constitutional Law is one of the 8 compulsory papers studied by everyone taking the 3 year law course at Cambridge. The paper focuses on the Separation of Powers, Parliamentary Sovereignty, the Rule of Law, Human Rights and Judicial Review. These are the things that determine the power public bodies have, and so is possibly one of the more political modules in the degree. The Academics in this area, who lecture and 'supervise' the paper are genuinely at the top of their field and are very good teachers.

Course module review - Natural Sciences, 11/04/2014

Lots of content and very difficult to find time to fit in all the work. The course pushes you EXTREMELY hard but is very satisfying when you understand it and all the hard work pays off once it is completed as you do feel much much smarter! Teaching is good for the most parts and notes are very comprehensive. Work is assessed mostly by exam but there is a very small amount of practical work and report writing. Resources are good and support is readily available.
